Health and Safety in Kingston

Council is currently updating its Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021. We have developed a draft plan and now need your feedback to check that it is relevant to Kingston.

Share your feedback to help Council create a healthier, safer and more engaged Kingston community.

Background

Council is legislated by the Health and Wellbeing Act to prepare a four-year municipal health and wellbeing plan upon the election of each new Council. Kingston’s Health and Wellbeing Plan outlines Council’s commitment in developing and promoting being healthy and well to its residents.

To develop our Draft Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021, we:

  • surveyed 500 residents with a health and safety survey
  • spoke with Council staff, partners and community members to ensure a broad range of knowledge was learned from
  • evaluated previous plans
  • reviewed and analysed state and federal policies and literature
  • collated and analysed health, safety and demographic data
  • had the draft plan reviewed and authorised by Council senior staff and Councillors.

Three documents produced during the development phase are in the Document Library for you to read:

Help Kingston be healthy and safe!

After taking all of the above into account we now have our Draft Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021! Download your copy of the draft plan from the Document Library to have a read.

We need you to tell us if it is on track! Are our priorities and objectives the most relevant to Kingston? Are our performance measures applicable? Does the background information make sense?

This consultation closes Friday 18 August.
